Hachette Go to Publish New Book, Your Time to Thrive, by Marina Khidekel and the Editors of Thrive Global with a Foreword by Arianna Huffington



From Arianna Huffington’s Thrive Global comes a revolutionary guide to living and working based on the growing science of Microsteps — tiny, actionable changes that are “too small to fail”


September 22, 2020, NEW YORK – Mary Ann Naples, publisher of Hachette Books and Hachette GO, announced today the acquisition of YOUR TIME TO THRIVE: End Burnout, Increase Well-being, and Unlock Your Full Potential with the New Science of Microsteps by Marina Khidekel, Thrive Global’s Head of Content Development, and the Editors of Thrive Global. YOUR TIME TO THRIVE brings together science, storytelling, ancient wisdom and inspiring role models from all walks of life to create a revolutionary behavior change system that will help readers kickstart real change and start getting immediate results.

YOUR TIME TO THRIVE, slated for publication in March 2021, is the first in a series of wellness books by the team at Thrive Global, a leading behavior change tech company founded by Arianna Huffington. The partnership was spearheaded by Mary Ann Naples in a deal with Albert Lee and Pilar Queen of United Talent Agency and the books will be edited by Renee Sedliar. Each book will be available in hardcover and eBook, with an audio edition by Hachette Audio.

In a world that was facing an epidemic of stress and burnout even before the COVID-19 pandemic, YOUR TIME TO THRIVE is your guide to making the mindset shifts and habit changes that allow you to live a life of well-being, purpose and performance. With chapters dedicated to sleep, nutrition, movement, focus and prioritization, communication and relationships, unplugging and recharging, creativity and inspiration, and purpose and meaning, YOUR TIME TO THRIVE is a treasure trove of practical, research-supported advice empowering people to improve their lives in the ways that matter most.

Helping people build healthy new habits that improve their lives is more important than ever. Arianna Huffington launched Thrive Global to do just that — Thrive’s mission is to end the stress and burnout epidemic and help individuals and companies unlock their greatest potential. Science continues to show that we don’t have to sacrifice our well-being in order to succeed; in fact, well-being is critical to peak performance.

When it comes to improving our lives, there’s nothing wrong with aiming big. But as the science shows, we can help ourselves by starting small with Microsteps. By making these tiny behavior changes too small to fail, we can incorporate them into our daily lives right away; and begin building healthier ways of living and working. YOUR TIME TO THRIVE eschews trendy self-care fixes and the latest health fads, offering a revolutionary behavior change system that is backed by science and rooted in real life.

“At Thrive, Microsteps have always been the heart of our behavior change platform,” said Arianna Huffington, Founder and CEO of Thrive Global. “With YOUR TIME TO THRIVE, we’ve brought together the latest science, storytelling and ancient wisdom to create a behavior change system that’s both timeless and tailored to our moment. Creating meaningful, sustainable behavior change isn’t just about helping people move from A to B in a mechanical way. It’s about tapping into what’s best in us — the wisdom, creativity and strength we all have. That’s what allows us to unlock our greatest potential. In a world defined by constant change, where we are all physically and mentally tested by daily challenges, YOUR TIME TO THRIVE will bring you the small incremental changes you need to thrive in every part of your life.”

“At a historically challenging time that has thrown so many of us off course, and made it harder than ever to prioritize our well-being and build healthy habits, YOUR TIME TO THRIVE offers a roadmap for regaining your footing and improving your health, happiness and sense of purpose and connection. Hachette Go is thrilled to partner with Arianna Huffington and the Thrive Global team to give readers fresh tools to help them succeed through easy-to-execute Microsteps — this book is a Microstep Bible,” said publisher Mary Ann Naples.
